MANNING, S. C., WEDI
OPEN6 IN FLORENCE
Much Interest Shown in Co-opera
TIMMONSVIIE IS SOLID
Bankers Spend Day Touring Country
For New Members for
Florence, June 27.-"''ohacco which
would have sold withotu the pool from
one to three ce.nts a pound in Ken
tucky will bring at least twenty cents
a pound when redried by the Burley
Association at a large profit to the
farmer," said John Bell, Kentucky
speaker, at. the meeting of tobacco
farmers and business men in the
court house at Florence today.
Mr. Bell, who stated that Ken
tucky growers have already drawn
over nineteen million dollars, was fol
lowed by B' icrht Williamson, president
of the Bank of Darlington, and vice
president of the association, who
strongly endorses the statements of
the Kentuci:m an'- t:t'd his belief
that. the orderly marketing and grad
ual distribution of payments to to
bacco farmers would insure greater
prosperity for growers, bankers and
merchants in South Carolina.
Stating that the warehouse costs
for tobacco handled through the
Burley pool were slightly more than
twenty cents a hundred pounds; that
the total expense of handling the
growers' tobacco through the Ken
tucky association would not exceed
fifty cents a hundred pounds, the
Kentucky member of the Burley
Growers' Association compared these
charges to the costs of selling tobacco
for charges of one to one and a quar
ter dollars over the loose leaf floors.
That Florence county is thor
oughly stirred by the whirlwind cam
paign is further attested by the fact
that bankers from .every harnk and
prominent merchants of Timmons
villc have spent the day touring the
county for new members for the as
sociation, enlisting the aid of'Southall

from Virginia, who arrived this nMorn

OPPOlRTUNITY TO ENTER
CLEMSON COLLEGE NOW
The attention of young men inter
terested in a technical education is
directed to the Clemson scholarship
announcement appearing elsewhere
in this issue.
Clarendon County is entitled to 4
four-year scholarships and 1 one-year
scholarship. Last session the follow
ing young men from this county were
at Clemson on scholarships: Hiarvin,
.J. L., E. ). Plowden, and J. H. Tim
For the session of 1922-1923 there
are 2 four-year scholarships and one
ot-year Agricultural Course scholar
ships vacant- in this county.
A college education, viewed merely
as an' investment of time and of
money, is equal to an estate worth
thousands of dollars. Viewed, how
ever from its highest sense such an
education prepares a young man for
greatest service to this country and
iaces him ini a position to enjoy
some of the good things of life. Edu
cat ion fits one for a life whose pos
sibilities are limited only by his ca
pacity and his character.

The decidedly successful opening )f

truthful aivertising and low prices
get results. The ste has had a
phenominal business the first days of

been eager buyers of the offering.

This is inexpensive and can be

SIGN THE CLUB ROLL YOURSELF
I desire all enrolling clerks through
out the County as well as every good
and patriotic citizen to read this ar
ticle and then constitute himself or
herself a committee of one to help us
get the results we want, and that is
for every voter to sign the club rolls
without making the characteristic X.
In the past the County Superinten
dents have been requested to get all
the books after their return to the
County Chairman and to compile a
list showing the number of voters who
had to sign the books by making their
I feel sure there are hundreds of
voters who can sign their names and
yet who do not simply because it is a
little trouble and so much easier to
touch the pen after the enrolling clerk
has writton their names. Now the
clerks should insist that each voter
do this for himself or herself, and if
the writing is not legible, then the
clerk can underwrite the name.
During the next few days voters
who are not accustomed to writing
much could practice a little and you
would be surprised at your improve
mnet. , Again there are those who
really cannot write. Here is where
some good samaritan can get in good
work. If you, Mr. Reader, know of
any man or woman who cannot write
his or her name, offer to teach- such
one. Any one can learn to write his
or her name in a little while, and
should the County Superintendent of
Education be called on this year to
compile a list of voters who have made
their cross marks let it be a very
small list. . It its not creditable to us
as a people to have such a large per
centage, and if all wvill get interested
in this we can cut the number down
Schools for illiterates have been
conducted for several years where the
percentage was large, but for Claren
don we have not had many for rea
s ns not necessary here to tell.
I feel that we can and should make
a better showing than we did in the
past where one out every six made
There were three or four clubs in
the County where\ not a single X
appeared. Why can't we add to the
list and thus reduce the crosses?
Remember, do not make your X un
less you really cannot write. Even
if this be so, can't you learn to write
before the last Friday in July?

Long Life and Reliability
The Hupmobile is a notable' car for style.
It has great beauty. It is comfortable to the
point of being luxurious.
But the thing that people tell each other
most often, is that it is almo'st impossible
to wear it out.
We are still supplying parts for the first
Hupmobiles ever built, 12 and 13 years ago;
and these cars are in use today all over
Back of Hupmobile long life and reliability
is the fact that its important parts and its
precise shop practice, are similar, and as
fine, as are employed in manufacturing the
highest priced cars.
